I've been quite annoyed by this. On post edit page, once I edited something in the middle of the page and hit Update, the whole page reloads and the edit box starts from the top again and I have to scroll-and-search my last edited point.

Is there any workaround, solution to this?


I am not aware of clean native solution, however there have been at least one plugin in the past Save Editor Scroll Position (note - very outdated) trying to address this and might serve like prior art.

There is also open trac ticket #18943 Scroll back to previous editor position after post save/update, however without patch suggestions or core developer feedback.

  • Thanks, didn't think this can be solved by plugin. I installed this plugin instead and it works – gerrytan Mar 3 '14 at 23:32
